Is it possible to get just the hinges to the flip down DVD screen for an 04' Ford Expedition? Or would I be better off just replacing the whole unit?
#1701 of 1707 EB Expedition Fuel Injector O-Rings
May 30, 2010 (10:42 am)
Hi all, I am a newbie to this forum. I have been searching for several hours with no results yet on my problem. I have a 2001 EB Expedition with 172K miles. I was getting a 0308 error code and was told it was the #8 cylinder giving the problem. I went out to the car with my 15 year old son to try to teach him a thing or two and wound up over my head. Trying to get to the #8 coil and plug is near impossible. I finally tried to remove the chrome bar (fuel rail?) over the fuel injectors to get better access (big mistake) That didn't seem to help so I tried to put it back together. When I lifted it originally the three front injectors came out of the manifold, the fourth (#8) came of the top of the injector. Apparently there is an o-ring that fits on the injector that came off and went someplace unknown. When I turn on the ignition I get fuel spraying from the fuel rail over the injector. Have searched all over the engine area for the missing o-ring with no luck. Not really sure if there is an o-ring to begin with. I have checked with my fingers and it does not appear to be up in the fuel rail and is not on the fuel injector. Any help here will be greatly appreciated. Are there any web sites to go to with visual help? I was a mechanic back in the 60's but cars have changed a lot since then and I am way out of my league with current engine technology. Also any suggestions on getting to that #8 coils and boot easily? Hate to take it to a dealer, only one in my town for 200 miles and they take unfair advantage of their customers. I need my truck/car for work and downtime is especially painful. All thoughts are greatly appreciated.

There are o-rings on the fuel rail, not sure what to siuggest for that. Maybe they stock just the o-rings at the dealer, or at a chain auto parts store. I've read about people going both ways on the need to take the rail off. Many say you don't need to. Have you ever had the plugs done? At 172 it is high time. Could be either a plug or cop issue as the cause of your original problem. I paid to have my plugs done at 130k, ran a little over $400 but I couldn't afford the down time should something go wrong. I didn't do the cops or boots, and will hit those as needed. You can get a set of 8 on ebay for around 90 bucks or pay the dealer 90 each.

Does the front drive train turn or move when disengaged while driving?

Sure wish I'd seen this a month ago.. As many Expeditions from the early 200's I suddenly saw on the roads of California this year, I was hoping it was a good sign, but doesn't look that way unfortunately. I have msgs. # 65 and 66 under Expedition fuel pump problems. Most people probably have my problem and don't even know it! Some of us are current and need answers. Please keep in touch if you see anything to resolve my "deflection of guages"/ fuel pump issue.

Sep 24, 2012 (7:42 pm)
ok, I have a 2001 Expedition, and I found some wires just hanging underneath the drivers side of the vehical. Not sure if it was cut or frayed or what. I have no idea where it even comes from or goes to. It's in a wiring harness this I know. So would anyone know what it could be???
